Love is in the Air - Happy Valentines Day!

We will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Friday, February 11th. Each class will have a celebration near the end of the day with their classmates. Students may bring in Valentines to share with the class. Valentines can be accompanied with a small trinket or goodie bag. All Valentines' cards will be sent home with your child. Candy may be passed out and sent home, but will not be eaten at the party. Look for more information from your child’s classroom teacher in their weekly newsletters.

Your feedback helps us celebrate and improve!

Every year, District 303 conducts a satisfaction survey eliciting feedback from our students, teachers, and parents. This year, as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), we will now be participating in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. As a parent or guardian, this survey will provide you with the opportunity to share your thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness about your child’s school.

We need at least 20% of our families to take this survey. You know Mr. Jarot will be overly friendly and persistent until we meet our goal. :)

We value your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your suggestions for improvement. To take the parent survey please visit and select the appropriate survey. Click HERE for a more detailed letter.
